Wells-Next-The-Sea Hostel

Hostel Wells-Next-The-Sea

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

The quays still teem with yachts and fishing boats in the port of Wells, where you'll find this newly-opened hostel in the heart of the town. It's a fine base from which to indulge in flora and fauna forays into the surrounding countryside.

Follow creeks and salt marshes busy with birdlife, enjoy miles of empty beaches or take a boat at high tide to see seals. Explore the network of footpaths leading inland and you'll discover ancient churches, flint villages and welcoming pubs. For the fit, the North Norfolk Coast Path is temptingly close.

Our Top Local Attractions include: Holkham Hall & Deer Park, Seal Trips, Pensthorpe Nature Reserve (home of BBC's Springwatch), Wells & Walsingham Light Railway, Holkham & Brancaster Beaches, Binham Priory, Tasty Fish & Chips and lots of Crab Fishing!
